Sticky Thread Sticky: Most Motivational Quotes

"It is not the critic who counts, not the one who points out how the strong man stumbled or how the doer of deeds might have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred with sweat and dust and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes...

2020 will be the defining year.

Male, 39, 5"10'. The new year is in front of me. 2020 has got to be a defining year. To tell you the truth, this is not a new year's resolution, at least not one of the "I'll go to the gym everyday" kind that is usually broken before February even appears on the calendar. Why not? Because 2019...

White as a Sheet - Tanning Recommendations

My skin is as pale as snow, and I can never tan in the hot sun. Can feel really awkward in a crowd. I'm from Ireland, but people I meet on vacation assume I'm from Poland or Russia because my skin remains a pale white. Really bugs me each time I return back home just as pale as I left. Talking...

What does an intermediate male lifter's body look like?

I've just started lifting and my goal is to reach an intermediate level. I read that to be an intermediate lifter, you should be able to bench press 1xBW for 10 reps and squat 1.5xBW for 10 reps. What does someone's physique typically look like after achieving this, at a 10-15% body fat level?
